Studio Ghibli released a teaser video a few days ago that included images of a Grogu figurine and both its and Lucasfilm's logos. We now understand what those posts were referring to. It appears that the two businesses collaborated to produce a short film that Studio Ghibli hand-drew. Zen - Grogu and Dust Bunnies is the name of the animated movie starring the "susuwatari" from Hayao Miyazaki's My Neighbor Totoro and Spirited Away as well as the beloved alien toddler from The Mandalorian with a deep affinity for the Force.
The short film was reportedly directed by Katsuya Kondo, who is well-known for his character design work and a style that is closely related to Studio Ghibli's films, according to IGN. Ludwig Göransson, who created the scores for The Mandalorian's first two seasons, also provided music to it. Three years after The Mandalorian debuted, Zen - Grogu and Dust Bunnies will be accessible for streaming on Disney+ starting today, November 12.
After leaving to train at Luke's Jedi Temple towards the end of the second season, Grogu will return and be reunited with "Mando" in the third season of The Mandalorian. In a clip published during the company's D23 expo in September, Disney gave fans a preview of what they may anticipate when the show returns at some point in the next year.
